The report will consider results from all the RETROUT activities.

The WP Project Reference Group comprising of associated partners will provide feed-back to the identified strategic development and management options for fishing tourism and sport fishing. Moreover, the Reference Group will disseminate the proposed options its network in order to receive and compile comments and feed back to the project team.

The target groups share similar challenges (including biological-climatological conditions, policy and regulatory framework i.e. EU Directives and policies) and it is thus relevant to develop a transnational action plan to increase growth and jobs in the coastal fishing tourism sector. A transnational action plan will strengthen the national institutions' ability to get acceptance for required measures to underpin sustainable blue growth.
